Thirty-Third Saturday in Ordinary Time

I will rejoice in your salvation, O Lord. Because my enemies are turned back, overthrown and destroyed before you. You rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked; their name you blotted out forever and ever.

There is nothing in this world that we should fear more than God. There is nothing on this earth we should be in awe of more than God. There is nothing in existence that can compare to God, Who is the Alpha and the Omega. Our enemies are as nothing. They shall be turned back, overthrown, and destroyed. Our difficulties are dust. They will blow away in the wind. No nation is above God. No person immune to judgment. We will all face Him some day and have to answer for what we have done and failed to do. We can only hope God will find us in awe of Him and respectful of His commandments, teachings, and inspirations. We can only pray He will find us acceptable and grant us the great grace of salvation.

Do we have a healthy fear and awe of God? Do we pray to God to deliver us from all evil, especially those evils most tempting to us? What in our lives is God asking us to rebuke so we might become holier people?

O Lord, there is nothing in this world that can compare to you and your salvation.
